Ex-Constitutional Law prof Barack Obama is going to try another end run around the U.S. Constitution. Of course, while teaching that course in Chicago, Obama was simultaneously teaching Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”. . . so who can be surprised. Obama is now campaigning for universal amnesty for all illegal aliens in America and may well end by using an executive order as his “magical hammer and sickle-type wand.” The idea is that by granting American citizenship to parts of or all the illegal aliens, the Democrats would potentially gain about 85% of the thirteen to twenty million new voters created over night.
If done early enough the 2010, election could be salvaged and his own 2012 re-election would also be assured. Howsomever, the only thing that matters is the latter. Once set into motion, Obama’s little ploy could practically assure progressive control of the house, senate and presidency for the foreseeable future . . . . such murky dirty tricks (of the sort communists have made infamous throughout history) are becoming commonplace for Mr. Obama.
Item: Overt bribes of at least half a dozen senators to swing voting for Obamacare (Cornhusker Kickback, Louisiana Purchase, etc.) angered much of the nation. The desired end: a fillibuster-proof senate for the Dems.
Item: naming one Republican senator part of his cabinet and seeking to convince another to also make the same move so that Democratic governors could replace** them with Democratic senators, again in the name of a fillibuster-proof majority in the senate.
Item: Even though it's still very early in the trial of ex-Illinois governor Rod Blogojevich, phone conversations with White House staffers Emanuel and Axelrod (from the FBI recordings) show that Obama himself was involved with scheming to secure Valerie Jarret the ex-Obama senate seat. We already know about the efforts to get Sestak and Romanoff to drop out of primary races to benefit Obama's favored candidates, Chicago-style politics is certainly attractive, eh?
Item: The Obamacare bill was treated as if it were an emergency war measure with its vote scheduled for 1:00 a.m. in the morning. Financial reform recently passed at 3:30 a.m the day before yesterday. Any ridiculous ploy to get the opposition voters to fail to show up.
Item: Obama fooled Michigan Representative Bart Stupak and ten of the eleven other “pro-life Democrats” into delivering the needed votes to make Obamacare a “GO” in the house by giving Stupak a worthless piece of paper on which Obama (the most pro-abortion president in history) pledged that Obamacare would NOT fund any abortions. The paper is less than worthless but Stupak happily accepted it and the measure passed by five or six votes.
Item: Hoping to get two extra Democratic Senators and five extra Democratic Representatives and a million new Democratic voters the Democrats about six or seven weeks ago tried to make Puerto Rico our 51st state (perhaps Mr. Obama hoped to create jobs for flagmakers?) which the Puerto Rican people are themselves against.
Item: When his cap and trade got mired down dead in the Senate, Mr. Obama had the Environmental Protection Agency state by edict that “Carbon Dioxide is a dangerous gas” (in keeping with the myth of global warming). Only trouble? The EPA was violating its own rules by doing this. The agency is required to base any such conclusions and regulations based upon them ONLY ON ITS OWN RESEARCH. So by adopting the shoddy “climate-gate” results they and Mr. Obama proved themselves morally bankrupt again. Several states sued and the edict was dropped.
Item: slow response on the Gulf spill has activated the progressive left and has them calling for Obama’s Cap and Trade bill to be passed and oil drilling to be halted everywhere, but especially at sea. Unmentioned, the reason we’re drilling at these depts now is that the environmentalists have stopped new drilling on land and at much shallower, and safer, depths. Little known fact, the actual start of problems for British Petroleum in the Gulf was NOT the late April explosion, but rather February 3, when a series of leaks began appearing at the macondo wellsite where BP’s Deepwater Horizon rig was operating. Then the whole rig nearly blew up. Salazar and Obama knew about all this no later than Valentine’s Day but did not tell the American people and treated it all as “no big deal” and continued to treat it that way till at least late-middle May. The president would like to get the country feeling in such crisis mode that he can either get the necessary votes to pass Cap and Trade or call it a condition of emergency and declare an executive order with Cap and Trade in effect as part of “necessary emergency response.”
Item: Of course Obama has no right or power to use an executive order to do this or to grant amnesty and citizenship to illegal aliens (the “Nirvana, he’s seeking to allow him to control the country, more or less as a dictator), but certainly he has not so far allowed such considerations to get in the way of “fundamentally transforming America” into an echo of Communist Cuba. No president has ever had these powers, but by the time the courts get it all unwound, a lot of damage could be done, it could already (he hopes) be too late for America.
Ya’all live long, strong and ornery,
